P90X2 / Ready for the Insanity Challenge
#P90X PAP Upper Body is becoming a likable routine. Once you get in the zone, this workout flies by in a pool of sweat and shaking. Be sure to get enough water because I always end up with a headache by the end of this. One of my biggest problems is the renegade rows. My hands hurt doing pushups on the dumbells. I probably should get some gloves. So how is your fitness routine working for...
P90X2/3 mile run. Insanity Challenge in April!!
#P90X2 #marathontraining This morning I did P.A.P upper body. This last month of P90X2 is rotating P.A.P upper and lower body with a day of Yoga X2 tossed in for good measure. I like PAP upper body, not so much lower body. Medicine ball planks really freakin hurt after about 30 seconds. Like all his workouts, if this get’s to intense (It won’t…i’m slighly...
P90X2 - PAP Lower
#P90X2 2nd week of P.A.P lower body and it’s not that bad. The Tony Triangle hurts but beyond that i can handle it. I can’t wait to start Insanity in a few more week.
P90X2M3D5 - PAP Upper body / turbo kick
#P90X2 P.A.P. Upper Body this morning was refreshing. I was sick last week, Kat got sick this week and baby Aaron got sick on Wed. None of us is still feeling the best but I’m finally beginning to feel my energy levels rise again. I 1/2 way did turbo kick this morning because Aaron seems to be attached to me while he’s not feeling well. I”m teaching on Saturday at a gym so I...

gothedistance69: By Irene Davis, PhD, PT, FACSM, FAPTA, FASB It has been suggested that running is naturally innate in us as it was a means of survival. Natural running can be defined as running in the way we were designed for. This can be best observed when one is running without the interference of…
P90X2M3D2- P.A.P Upper Body
#P90X2 This is a fun workout. If you’ve done Insanity:Asylum, this won’t seem as hard because you’ve done some of these moves before. The first 1/2 of the workout is harder than the second 1/2 but all in all solid sweat and workout. That’s all I got to say about this. I need a shower and my morning Shakeology. Keep pushing play
P90X2M3D1- P.A.P Lower body
#P90X2 Finally I’ve made it to phase 3 of P90X2! On tap for this morning, P.A.P lower body. P.A.P you ask? Post Activation Potentiation which is a fancy way of saying iso-metrics. It’s probably a little more complicated than that but it’s basically isometrics. This routine seems to borrow from P90X plyo and Tony has some new moves that really made me focus. Legs are...
iRunner- Get Lucky 13.1 (or the dumbest idea I've...
#marathontraining #getlucky #1/2marathon I successfully ran the “Get Lucky” 1/2 marathon this morning. I’ve learned a few new things AND pushed myself to a limit that I don’t plan on finding again any time soon. The weather this time of year is exceptionally warm! Not a big deal, I ran in races all last summer right? This is correct, however they were only...
Yoga X2 - Scent of Sweat
#P90X2 This is my first workout in a week and it felt good to do but my body was quick to remind me this is my first workout in a week and I was sick. I had to do it Naked, of course, because I’m still in the process of sweating out all the toxins from the flu so if I jump to high, I break out in a flop sweat right now. Why ruin a perfectly good set of clothes. Last year when I first...
The flu is a bitch and i’m officially on the hand washing sanitizer team. It felt touch and go there for a bit and I even went back to the doctor yesterday because I was still feeling uck and my skin hurting was really scaring me. I finally feel like myself again! From the ashes So what have I learned from this experience? I’ve noticed that when I quit a job and get a week off,...
The Flu - Day 3
Normally I would be writing a P90X2 post about how interested or not Phase 3 is or how my 3 mile run went and the joys of fitness. Not this week. I am on day 3 of the flu and day 3 of my vacation, funny how that works out. I started getting sick on Sunday at a birthday party. I think it happened when my son decided he had to feed me M&M’s by placing them directly in my mouth after...
The Flu - Day 3
I officially have the flu, complete with Dr visit and meds. I was suppose to start phase 3 of P90X2 on Monday, that obviously didnt happen. Im suppose to run 3 miles today, thats not going to happen. I have a ½ marathon on Sunday. im crossing my fingers I feel better soon.
iRunner- 7 miles in Washington
Recovery week comes to an end with my long 7 mile run. The weather was almost perfect for a long run around the wonder neighborhood of Washington…ILLINOIS! It really was a good day to run, minus the 15 mph head wind beating on me throughout most of the run. Temp was about 50 outside and I figured out (last long run) that if i wear toe socks in my toe shoes that it adds a tad more padding...

P90X2 recovery week continues with anothersession of award winning power yoga. Ok its probably not award winning but it should be. Yoga keeps getting harder and I cant figure out why! The other activities eventually normalize and get easier, why not this? Id like to think its because of the running im doing but im really not that sore today. oh oh oh freak injury alert! I was lying in bed on...
P90X2M2 - Recovery Week 2
#P90X2 Ah, recovery week begin and not a moment to soon! Month 2 has always been the hardest for me doing a P90X program, it’s not boredom, it’s you’re working the system and sometimes the system is just tedious and hard. I did yoga X2 this morning because I needed a good strength and stretching session after this weekends long run. I needed to sweat and relax and I needed...

It’s cold and windy and snowing but I could handle that, what changed this run was the HILLS. ok rewind ««««< Kat and I ran in Tinley Park for our 10 mile run today because it was going to be cold and windy and we didn’t want to push Aaron in his...
10 miles tomorrow!
As i ride the train home, having been rained on and hailed on and now watching the snow, it dawns on me that I have a ten mile run tomorrow. I have my 3rd ever ½marathon in three weeks, another in April and my first full in May. I will have run more miles this year in 5 months than I ran all of last year! Why am I doing this? I dont know but i can tell you that crossing the finishline at...
